OMGosh - It's PINK!!!


This last weekend I took part in a Virtual Retreat discussed on the yahoo mail list for Heartstrings Quilt Project. For several years, I've made quilts for Project Linus, both for fun, and for consideration of some ill child. In addition, for each quilt/blanket donated, two of the local quilt shops offer a chance to win a very nice sewing machine. Last year, my friend Jody won the machine!

I have really, really, really TRIED to make something soft and gentle, sweetsy, cutesy, and gentle, but color, for me, has a way of getting out of control -- I'm 'over the top' with this PINK quilt! LOL. But I can imagine some little 8 year old girl just LOVIN' it. There are a lot of little figures images, characters in some of this fabric.

It is foundation pieced on fabric, and I have poly batting, so will tie it.

I think anyone will just love this quilt. I am not a fan of Pink but I think the pink string quilts have been so pretty. And I have a tendency towards the bright ones.........nice job

It is bright and cheerful and I am sure any little girl will just love it to bits! How fun to add some novelties for a childs quilt - and great that your friend won the sewing machine last year - very generous of the shop owners!

Cheers!

I love it -- so it's not all sweet and gentle -- who says girls have to be anyway?
